In the bathroom you’ll find an inviting claw foot tub that was just made for relaxing.  Along with the pedestal sink and impressive oil rubbed bronze sink and tub faucets, it will give you the atmosphere of a spa.  But lets not forget everyday functionality as we have incorporated a washer/dryer combo unit with plenty of storage above and a pull out ironing board that can be discretely tuck away.

All these breathtaking details combined, make this tiny house what you and your family have been looking for!

 

Clear Creek Model – 24′ Tiny House Travel Trailer -Boise State Themed Tiny House

My favorite thing about this Boise State Tiny House inspiration is… the colors, and all the personal touches included in it, which just make it one of the happiest tiny homes I’ve seen. This beautiful tiny house is 24′ long (28′ with including trailer tongue). It features beautiful cedar trimmed exterior, white washed pine interior, spacious L shaped kitchen with lots of cabinets for storage and 2 lofts – one sleeping loft that is 8′ and a 5′ storage loft.

This tiny house is going to stay in Idaho for a while but I am sure it will eventually hit the road and travel around. Enjoy your tiny house Pete and thank you for letting us build your tiny. Once you get back on the road, enjoy your travels.

Tiny House Living Build Yours Today

We’d love to  introduce  Linda’s Tiny House living space.

Clear Creek, is one of Tiny Idahomes most popular builds.  Linda is beyond thrilled  and couldn’t wait to experience tiny living in her new stunning space.

Linda decided on a 26′ Clear Creek Tiny Home RV after deciding change was necessary. Linda wanted to be closer to her husband Paul of over 20 years. Paul was admitted in a nursing home and  after months of having to travel 6 hours a day Linda decided to sell her home. Now, Linda can spend less time traveling to get Paul to his doctor appointments and more time with him & enjoying her new space.

We asked Linda why she chose Tiny Idahomes as her builder and this is what she had to say; ” After taking a tour in your factory I noticed the great workmanship & I was impressed. But, it wasn’t until I had questions and Tiny Idahomes was very personal about accommodating all the changes I wanted to make. They are just amazing about communication and making me feel I made the perfect decision. I would highly recommend them to everyone.”

Below you’ll see her spacious bright and airy Clear Creek home.

Linda is happy to be closer to Paul and feels right at home in Emmett, Idaho.

We thoroughly enjoyed being there with her through every step of the process, from her design, color combinations, picking options, to her completed “home”.

Thank you for allowing us the pleasure of working with you and for trusting us as your tiny house on wheels RV builder!

Downsizing -Learning to Let Go

Learning to let go is one of the biggest obstacles to downsizing. Deciding what should stay and what should go is hard!  We are drowning in our clutter wondering why we are feeling stressed, exhausted, and overwhelmed.

Taking an inventory of your possessions and prioritizing them are major steps in downsizing your life.  Downsizing is emotional, all those memories and attachments are hard to let go of. If you really take inventory of what you need. Ask yourself some key questions.  You can let go and be free of possessions.  Here are some useful tips to get the process started.

When you are considering an item ask yourself the following questions:

  • How often do I use this? If you have not touched it in 6 months and it is not a seasonal item, then remove it from your life.
  • Would you pay to replace it? If it was lost, stolen, or destroyed would you pay to replace the item?
  • Are you saving it for someone else? Family heirloom you want to pass down? What are you waiting for?  You could give the item and experience them enjoying it.

Now that you have these questions in mind pick a room and set up three piles.  Toss. Keep. Maybe. Be mindful of the “maybe” pile, if it starts getting bigger than the other piles, remove it and give yourself only two options.  You should also consider a donation pile. In most cases, you can call local thrift stores and ask if they come and pick up donations. Consider holding a garage sale, offering items on craigslist or on eBay.  By tackling one room at a time you maintain focus and have a sense of accomplishment.

Consider asking for help from children or relatives. If you have children most of the stuff is probably related to them anyway, so why not get them involved. One of the biggest obstacles is sentimental objects. If you are keeping things for your kids, ask them if they want them, or better yet give them to them now if possible.  If you are someone who has kept every school project, baby outfit, girl scout uniform ask yourself if you are keeping it for you or them?  Consider taking a picture of the item and keeping it instead. It is the memories you are holding on to, not the actual item.

Do not agonize over the process.  Pour yourself some wine, set a timer and just begin.  Take breaks and keep your time blocks manageable, 2 hours or less.  Embrace what is truly valuable to you. Make every possession a conscious choice in your life. Believe it or not, you will start to feel lighter and freer as you let go.

Downsizing is a chore, but once the work is done you will have a sense of accomplishment and pride in your space.  Moving forward, remember to ask yourself the following before adding anything new:

  • Will this add value?
  • Does it bring me peace, joy, or purpose?

What are you waiting for?  Start your downsizing your life now.

Downsizing Reminder tips:
  1. Involve relatives
  2. Give away now
  3. One space at a time
  4. Use a timer
  5. Keep, toss, maybe or donation piles
  6. Garage sales, craigslist or eBay items

Thinking Of Buying a Tiny Idahome?

Thinking of buying a Tiny Idahome? Designing your tiny home is the easy part. We will work with you to decide what design options will best suit your needs. Before the design process begins you may need to consider loan options. It is important to be prepared if you are applying for an RV or personal loan to make your dream a reality.

  • Prepare for a 20% down payment
  • Check your credit score, aim for a score between 700-650

Knowing the requirements before applying for the RV loan will make it a good experience. Consider your current bank, credit union, or check out personal loan options.  Keep in mind that RV loans are for recreation vehicles and most institutions do not consider them full-time housing. If this is the case, you may want to consider a personal loan for your purchase.

Your credit score will determine whether you qualify for a 15% down payment or if you will need the standard 20% down. You may still qualify with a 650-credit score, but lenders may require 30% down.

Look at your debt-to-income ratio to ensure you can make the required monthly payments. Your debt-to-income ratio should be under 35 to get approval.  Paying down existing credit card debt before you apply will increase your odds of approval.

Another thing to consider is where you will park your tiny home. Do some research on local zoning restrictions in your area. Tiny Idahomes are RV certified and can be parked in RV parks legally. All other locations will depend on your local zoning codes. Check out park fees to get a total picture of your tiny home costs.

After securing your loan, contact us to start the design process of your new Tiny Idahome. Check out our website for more information regarding models, ideas, or tips for your future Tiny Idahome.
